[kintsugi series]

KINTSUGI is a book series which explores mental health, family devotion and family duty, at the same time that studies the path and the consequences of making a cut off from a narcissistic family.


With a delusional mom, chronically depressive dad, schizophrenic brother, and an undiagnosed psycho grandma, Kez’s family meetings were always interesting to say the least.

When tragedy strikes too close to home, she has no choice other than to return to her home country and face the reality she left behind when she put an ocean and nine thousand miles between herself and her family.


With her mother dead and her father in grave condition, Kez must face her past, even if threatens to destroy whatever is left of her sanity.





Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery", also known as kinsukuroi 金繕い, "golden repair"), is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas with gold.

Life breaks people. The people who you love have more chances to break you than anyone else, because you invite them in.

pronounced Mikkaminumanosakura, this is a highly descriptive and evocative word in Japanese that means change happens very suddenly and intensely, much like the cherry blossoms that go from full bloom to being scattered in just a short space of time.


Change is necessary. But painful. After life breaks you, you need to figure out how to put yourself together again.
